A little bit of a good news / eyebrow-raising news situation here, as Warner Bros. and DC Films are reportedly plotting a Supergirl movie (yay!) from the writer of The Cloverfield Paradox (hmm…). It’s still early days, however, and given the number of writers typically involved in your average blockbuster, it seems likely that this iteration of the script will be one of many.
It’s getting to be that time of year, and The CW is going all-in with its formal renewals. Good news has arrived for fans of Black Lightning, Arrow, Flash, Riverdale, Supernatural and more, but who got left in the post-apocalyptic cold?
Black Lightning is exactly the jolt of reality the TV superhero genre needed – a jaded, vulnerable hero at a time ugly divisions of the past have come roaring back. Our pilot review, and a look at what’s to come.
Even as Arrow once again revoked access to Deathstroke, fans kept hope that recent references to Batman and Wonder Woman might signal greater leniency with the major DCEU characters. Not so, apparently, as Arrow boss Marc Guggenheim once again shoots down the notion that Justice League-rs Batman or Wonder Woman might make their CW debuts.
As if the real world weren’t increasingly rife with Nazis, the Arrow-verse has a whole planet full of them. See the forces of “Earth-X” invade Barry and Iris’ wedding with a full trailer for the four-way crossover event between Supergirl, Flash, Arrow and Legends of Tomorrow.
If the “Invasion!” weren’t bad enough, now the stars of Arrow, Flash, Supergirl and Legends of Tomorrow have a “Crisis on Earth-X” to contend with. Get a first look at Barry and Iris’ wedding, along with new superhero “The Ray” and Nazi Supergirl with photos from all four hours of the November crossover.
Supergirl got the short end of the crossover stick when Arrow, Flash and Legends convened last year, but our first look at “Crisis on Earth-X” is already making up for it. Check out first footage from the crossover event later this month, as Supergirl brings a new character to Earth-1.
We weren’t terribly surprised when Supergirl opted for its own Superman rather than shatter universes with a Smallville star, but The CW drama has nonetheless hosted a bevy of Super-cameos. Now, both Tom Welling and Michael Rosenbaum confirm they’ve been approached to join different Arrow-verse series.
The deluge of Super-stars making their way to Supergirl understandably slowed with Season 2’s Vancouver production move, but Smallville is finally getting in on the game – at a cost. Lois Lane herself, Erica Durance is coming to Supergirl Season 3, albeit as someone we’ve already met.
We don’t wish to alarm you, but you may see some DC superheroes at Comic-Con 2017. Not only have all the CW shows set their plans (including Black Lightning), but everyone from Young Justice to Krypton will be representing with panels and appearances. Get the full details!
